The Choregic Monument of Thrasyllos on the southern Slope of the Athenian Acropolis
A lecture by Konstantinos Boletis, Architect, Doctor of History and Archaeology, Ephorate of the Antiquities of the City of Athens.
The event is organised by Greek Archaeological Committee UK
This is the story of an impressive 4th c. B.C. choregic monument, whose Stuart and Revett 18th century drawings inspired ‘Greek Revival’ buildings in Europe and North America, its conversion into the Middle Byzantine period church of ‘St Mary of the Cave’, its bombardment damage in 1827 and its recent full restoration in 2017 by the speaker.
